A strange vision
By Youssef Kabalan Salameh
I thank God for all his help for me during my life, for without Our lord’s help, my life would not be as it is today in understanding his word, but still I believe that there is a very long way for me to learn and understand more. So I thank God for his great gift that came to our earth to help every person who seeks his word and his word only. For his word is true and trustful and we have to obey it; by following his principles in life which are given from the almighty God.
Any way there happened to me a very strange encounter fifteen years ago .I was nearly 14 years old and around the beginning of my journey of faith. I was walking one day near a very old cemetery which was near our home. Anyway, very few people even knew that it was a cemetery. It happened once that I decided to go and discover it, as I approached it, I felt a strange terrifying feeling, felt myself being drawn to it! a feeling I could not explain. Anyway, after many years from that incident, and when I was sleeping at midnight, It happened that I heard the lift in the same building being switched on, and I felt a power, drawing me, towards the door and I heard the bell ringing in a strange melody. As I opened the door, behold, I saw a strange creature standing, and he was about the same height as mine. It was a "skeleton”, and there was no flesh on his body at all, which was covered by an old rotten cotton wool, and I could see his skull which was filled with teeth, and there were no eyes at all as his eye sockets were totally empty. And he tried to tell me something, and his voice was like one who is mourning. Anyway I did not fall down but had faith in God, and I thank God's protection for our believing family for without his aid, imagine what would have happened. Thanks God that evil was driven away.
I woke up and found myself on the bed, but was then baffled as whether I woke up and walked unconsciously; asleep when that creature came; or was it a dream? I read after that strange incident a story written by Dr. Dahesh, which is called “Married a dead man”, and realized that it was the same creature being described here.
I thank God for his mercy on our family in its journey faith.
